1. FC Magdeburg: Tim Sechelmann wants Petrov's place - Third Division

1. FC Magdeburg: Tim Sechelmann wants Petrov’s place – Third Division

1. FC Magdeburg on its way to the second division! Super attack feature (63 goals) and stable defense. What’s even more annoying is that the four defenders have to be blown away before Saturday’s derby (2pm) against Halschen FC.

Reason: veteran Alexander Petrov (33) hit his right calf again in Würzburg (4:2). Its use seems more than questionable – especially since the defender only had to undergo an MRI yesterday.

Defense chief Tobias Muller (27): “I hope he returns to the field soon because he is important to us with his experience and his game.”

Is Tim Sechelmann’s watch (23) now?

The new signing from regional club Cologne II has played just eight games this season, but coach Christian Tetz (50) has already allowed him to play 45 minutes in Würzburg.

Sichelmann to Bild: “You don’t want to injure anyone, but it’s also clear that you as a player are always waiting for moments when someone might not be able to.”

It can be now! However: with Korbinian Burger, Tobias Knost and Adrian Malachowski, there are three other candidates for the defense.

So the defender asserts: “I think a week of training can decide who can play from the start.”
